Doltra, Jordi (2010) A better nitrogen use to improve organic wheat production. ICROFS News, November 2010, 4/2010, pp. 3-4.
Different crop management strategies are investigated in representative soils and climatic conditions of Denmark to enhance the yield and quality of organic wheat. The agronomic practices include the use of manure, catch crops and the composition of the crop rotation. Among these, manure application was the main factor affecting yields. Model predictions indicate that wheat yield could be improved by increasing manure nitrogen.
